List of All Raid Buffs & Debuffs – Cataclysm

Cataclysm brings with it another large change to raid buffs and debuffs. This time adding a bit more homogenization to them, allowing smaller raids to have more flexible compositions while still not missing out on many big ticket raid buffs. This also has the effect that no one specialization is brought only for a buff or debuff it provides.

All Cataclysm Raid Buffs

These spells do not stack within their respective category, meaning you only need to bring one of the listed classes to cover each buff. In some cases the same class can provide multiple different buffs, even with one spell. For example Mages Arcane Brilliance grants a bonus to Mana and Spell Power.

All Cataclysm Raid Debuffs

These do not stack on a single target, but multiple sources of a debuff can allow for quicker and more reliable uptime across multiple targets.

Cataclysm Raid Utility

These buffs generally do not stack directly, but having more of them available in your raid allows them to be used more often, or on more players. For example, Innervate is only used on one player at a time, so having multiple sources allows multiple casts.
